On March 9, 1945, american warplanes launched a huge firebomb campaign against Japan by dropping 2,000 tonnes of explosives over Tokyo. The raids targeted a 16 square mile area across the Japanese capital, killing 104,500 civilians, making it the deadliest conventional air raid ever.

@Louis I really enjoy these pictures also. Where do you find them?
Internet.
Most are already predesigned
Others, if I find a particular place, try to find another current photo of the same place respecting the angle at which the above was obtained.

After the WW2, proceedings against the major war criminals were instituted in Berlin on October 18, 1945, with the Tribunal’s receipt of the indictments. The defendants were 24 high-ranking representatives of the Nazi regime, along with seven organizations. The trials themselves were held in the Jury Courtroom, also known as “Courtroom 600,” at the Palace of Justice in Nuremberg.
